Okay, so when I started writing here, I also manage to find The Daily Post at WordPress.com , and it provides what many of aspiring blog writers like me find handy: Writing prompts, and a community.
Although I’m not sure if I can commit to follow the prompts daily, but I’ll start with those I can relate easily. Today’s:
Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?
It’s like answering an interview question! Alright, my blog, this recent one, is a reflection of my commitment to write consistently. It does not have fancy features, fonts, animation and whistles and bells, but I spent hours looking for the theme I use now (It’s HUM Theme btw :). It is all I need: Neat, tidy layout, good fovus on post, and run smoothly on any browser (because it’s simple)
My choice of theme and name reflects how I want to focul solely on the writing commitment, while everything else kept simple but still my style enough. I like hues of grey, with accent of a center Visual and colors (which explain my like to the Titles and Yellow Tram image).
I used free theme and alias, which show my starting and free nature. This can be something someday, maybe. I even dream of getting my own .com domain and write confidently there. I hope we’re heading there? and alias allows me to write freely. Not that I want to write controversial stuff or insult something, but because there is something liberating to write without your name attached to it.
I did not really understand when I used to read around that using Free WordPress.com allows you no widgets and stuff, but upon making my own, I realised how useful it is to put things in your site. I will in the future, I said that already: I will even buy my own .com domain *ambitions burning*
But here I told you the beauty of free wordpress.com like the one I’m having now: You can totally focus on your writing consistency. Well, at least for me. I will be tempted to tinker and add stuff If allowed! Design, theme, widgets, comments.. .
but for the time being and the daily time I have, this is already near perfect. This is something I looked forward for.
In Conclusion it reflects my life now: It doesn’t have everything I wanted yet, but the focus is already on what matters to me. and I tell you, it is all good.
